Lifestyle

The area is renowned for the superb Mediterranean beaches of the Riviera and Cote d’Azur such as Cannes, Juan les Pins and Antibes. The major town of Nice with its February flower carnival has an airport where more than 20 UK flights arrive each day.

The beaches of the Var include the well known resort of St Tropez. The Vaucluse offers superb bastide villages and wonderful views over the Luberon mountains. These areas produce a lot of wine.

There are some ski resorts in the departements of the Alpes de Haute Provence and Alpes Maritimes which are within 60-90 minutes of the coast.

Provence Property

Properties in Provence range from villa style homes nearer to the sea, to stone bastides and mas in the back country.

Although some of the properties are amongst the most expensive in the world, it is still possible to buy an apartment or small house away from the coast at very reasonable prices, perhaps starting around €150,000.

Why Invest in Provence

The major town of Marseille is in Bouches du Rhone and is a great place for property investment.
